Me and my wife looked at loads hotels in Istanbul and most just didn't fit our budget as they were extremely overpriced trying to find a room close to the blue mosque. We paid roughly 55 Euros per night and booked online prior to flying out there. The hotel is situated around 5 mins away from the amazing blue mosque... More

We spent nine nights at the Lamp Hotel and found it to be exactly what we needed. It is just minutes from the Sultanahmet tram stop and a 5 minute walk to the Topkapi Palace, Haghia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The rooms are small, but quiet and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is generous with made-to-order omelettes and in the... More

I found Lamp Hotel a bit frustrating. I felt quite uncomfortable here. Mehmet, one of the brothers that runs the place was quite rude to me. I was staying in the hotel in order to meet up with friends from India who had the room above me. Mehmet made me pay of the room in full on arrival, even after... More

I spent two nights at this hotel which is located within a few minutes from most of the important tour sites in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul. The staff are very friendly and along with Mehmet they give you that one-of-the-family feeling you would not get at the larger hotels. The rooms are clean and of nice size. There is... More

Just returned home yesterday after a five night stay in Istanbul at the Lamp Hotel. This is an amazing City and - for the price - this is an amazing little Hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for Mehmet and his staff and if you are fortunate, as I was, to have a room with a view of the Blue... More

I stayed there with my wife for 3 nights in May,2013. It is conveniently situated, close to the Blue Mosque(back side of it) and in the Sultanahmet area. Easy to explore the city from here. Decent accommodation, nothing grand about this place, had to haggle to get the AC switched on in May(does get really hot in Istanbul).Changed the room... More

We stayed here this past weekend - The location was awesome, the price was not too bad. The rooms were small and the staircase was steep, but we were in Istanbul to see Istanbul and not the hotel. The breakfast was fresh, the staff very nice and helpful, the rooms were very clean.
